30 Nov

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived here on Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. No blog? No problem! Just leave a comment with your responses. Please, take some time to visit the other participants and see what others are reading. So, let’s get to it!

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently reading: I’ve made an effort to keep pushing on with Soldiers’ Pay by William Faulkner. Though I’m not loving it, I am enjoying it a bit more. The first three chapters, that seemed pretty disconnected, have come together so that frustration has gone. It might be a push to the end, but I’m now determined to finish this one!
I haven’t made great progress in Sophie’s Choice by William Styron, but I continue to push forward. The writing is a little dense for me and it’s been hard to really escape into it like I’d like to. Since I realized I don’t need this one for a reading challenge, I might let it bleed into next year. I’m going to think of it as planning ahead for my next challenge.
I was able to start on The Birth of Venus by Sarah Durant, though I haven’t gotten super far into it yet. We did a Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving morning which was a decent chunk of time for me to listen. I hope to do some more running soon, but that’s also depending on the weather staying nice so I don’t have to worry about running on ice.

Recently finished: I wrapped up My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows! I really enjoyed this one. My review went up on Monday if you want to check that out. I ended up giving this one Four out of Five Stars, though I contemplated doing Five. It was really enjoyable, but there were just a few times in it that I found myself a little frustrated or confused so I didn’t go for the full Five Star rating. I know there are more in this ‘series’ but I also understand that maybe they’re not a series as far as the plot but more of the world? If someone knows more and can clarify, please let me know.

Reading next: I’ve got one more audiobook to wrap up my 2022 challenge! I’ll be taking on The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho as my final book. It’s nice and short so I’m not too worried about squeezing it in before the end of the year. It feels so good to be within sight of the finish line!

    I’m glad you enjoyed My Lady Jane. It wouldn’t be a book for me though as I’m way beyond the YA age bracket!

      I’m well past the target YA, too, but I enjoy the lighter tones and nostalgia of my teenage years. Happy reading!

    Every book in the series with My Lady Jane have different characters, so can be read as standalones. It is in the same world.

    It would bug me too much to let books bleed between years, but I’m glad it works for you. I hope it helps you prioritize what you want to read. Happy reading!
